The Inca Trail / Machu Picchu / Amazon Rainforest Wilderness and Travel Medicine CME Conference is a true classic that should be on every adventurer's "to-do" list. It is difficult to describe the magnificence of Machu Picchu, a stone fortress city nestled below stunning peaks. It is perhaps the greatest mystery of the Inca Empire. The four-day trek on the Inca Trail to reach this pre-Columbian site is a pilgrimage through time. Beautiful Andean scenery, as well as cultural history, unfolds as we hike up and down steep stone staircases past ancient Inca outposts. Our guides and porters will carry all of your gear and prepare delicious meals on the trail.

After the Inca Trail, we'll fly to the fabulous Reserva Amazonica Lodge on the Amazon River. Our naturalist guides will take us on interpretive journeys to the Amazon Rainforest - an incredibly diverse and beautiful ecosystem.

This Wilderness and Travel Medicine CME Conference combines hiking the Inca with a visit to Machu Picchu and a trip into the heart of the Amazon jungle! You will get a true sense of the magic of Peru!

***Important Note: Please register early, as Inca Trail permits will sell out many months in advance.
